I Have A Secret…

Can I tell you guys a secret?

Well…I suppose it’s more of a quirk.

And I have a lot of freaking quirks.

ANYWAAYS. I have this…umm…quirk. It’s something I do all the fudgin’ time. I honestly hope I’m not the only one who does this, because then I’ll feel realllllly weird.

But, whenever I’m over at someone’s house (usually someone I don’t visit too often), I’ll…um. I’ll look through their makeup.

I’ll read every bottle, open every tube of lipstick and marvel at the color, pick through each potion and lotion like a nosey freak. BUT, I do NOT do this for the purpose to be nosey! In my opinion, makeup tells a LOT about a person. Are they the shampoo-hoarding types, or do they secretly have a double for every lipgloss? Are they the lip-balm-and-clear-mascara types, or do they have their counter buckling under the weight of cosmetics from Dior, Chanel, and Estee Lauder?

Because I have a huge fascination with beauty, I will admire each brush, each compact, with an astonishing curiosity. THIS is what they put on their faces?

Then, when I’m done, I’ll put it all back EXACTLY how it was before, wether strewn about, or tucked neatly into a little makeup pouch.

I especially loved doing this when I was a little girl. Beauty has always been a source of fascination for me.

I can still remember a time not long ago, when I was a teeny lil munchkin, with my first tube of lipstick and palette of eyeshadow. The lipstick was very pink, very glittery, and smelled very, very sweet, and I distinctly remember wearing royal blue or lime green on my eyes. YIKES!

…..Anyway I though I just might want to share my um “quirk”.

Do any of you guys do anything similar? I hope so. I just thought I should share. :}

Peace!!

How-To: “Hot Girl” Disguise

WARNING: This look isn’t too appropriate for school, work, first dates, or any casual event. Wear with caution!

Haha ‘ello loves!

If any of you have heard of Jenna Marbles (the Youtuber), you will know I borrowed the title “Hot Girl Disguise” from her! This is my own spin-off of her comical look, tweaked to my own level of wearability with some personality thrown in.

Ever wanted to be someone else for ONE NIGHT? Well, this look does just that. You’ll feel glamorous, a little outrageous, and over-all: FIERCE.

I mean, hey. I brought out the falsies, eyeliner, and favorite lipstick, so things should get pretty cray-cray.

Here’s what you need for your one-night identity:

IMG_2926

  • A favorite full-coverage foundation (time to bring out your expensive potions and lotions!) 
  • Eye primer
  • Black or dark-colored eyeliner with NO glossy finish
  • Hazy eyeshadows
  • Mascara
  • One succulent lip shade of your choice (I adore deep berries, wines, bubblegum pinks, any fun color that suits you!)
  • False lashes (Optional)
  • Lipgloss (Optional)
  • Fragrance (Optional)
  • A pair of sexy heels (SORT OF optional)

So the first part is easy: Just dab on your coverage. You’re basically creating a blemish-free, dark-circle-free, crease-and-crinkle-free look. Erase away all your imperfections!

When you’re done with that, you can move on to the eyes. Choosing dark, soft colors, start to enhance your eyes around the crease, slowly working down to the lid. You can pick any colors, from dark purples, to browns, to forest greens, to grays. One rule: NO solid black eyes. You want to look pretty, not panda.

If you’re into the liner, it’s better to make it softer and smudged for this look, not pristine and sharp. The eyes should be soft, not like every bit was slaved over. Even though I kept mine simple (with just three shades), GIRL, if you wanna, you can pull out the glitter, rhinestones, and drag-queen falsies for all I care. It’s YOUR Hot Girl Disguise, dahhling.

AND NOW, the lips. With lips, it doesn’t have to be complicated. I chose a deep, glossy berry color for this look, but if Barbie-pink is more your style, go for it!

Now, squeeze into your party dress, dab on your fragrance, and slip on your sexy six-inches.

You’re fabulous.

As you can see, the eyes are lightly hazy, which makes them look really rich brown!

And the lips were easy-peasy, but I liked how plush and glossy they turned out.

Alas, I must frolic off to my boudoir to dream caviar dreams! Buhbye, my sweethearts.

Two New Finds

Hi everyone!

I recently went shopping, and purchased two new lipsticks by Esteé Lauder. I’m actually pretty pleased with these, so I wanted to have a little review on each! 

The first one is “Pink Power”Image 

It’s a creamy, bright pink with super-subtle gold shimmer. Bubble-gum pinks are VERY in right now, and isn’t this gorg? It brightens up my face really nicely and gives a young, fresh feel to your makeup. Plus, it’s very long-lasting, (Trust me, I wore it to school today and hardly had to do touch-ups!) but pricey. 25 bucks pricey. 😦 

The SECOND one is “Violet Electra” Image

This is my new favorite color I’ve EVER owned. Look at that swatch! Isn’t it dazzling? On the lips, it does not look like chrome, but a beautiful swipe of lush, delectable color. It’s unique. It’s edgy. It’s sexy. It’s va-va-voom sexy. When I wear it, it brings out every bit of gold in my skin and eyes, and I adore it. I MORE than adore it. I love it. I crave it. It’s the color I’ve been waiting for all my life. 

Love you guys! Peace out!
